## What we cover in class

The Advanced LSAT Logic Games Course is comprised of two separate parts: eight comprehensive, conceptual sessions, and twelve individual LSAT game analyses. The eight sessions in the course analyze the elements of a Logic Game at a microscopic level. Individual components of various games are presented and discussed, and the focus is on the recognition and application of strategies and concepts. The lessons collectively form the theoretical foundation of our advanced games approach.

The application of these ideas is made after all lessons have been completed, in The Games section of the course, where we show students how to break down and skillfully solve some of the most difficult games in LSAT history. Accompanying each Logic Game explanation is a link that allows you to print a copy of the game, so you will have a hard-copy of the game as it is being reviewed.

Because the discussions in this course build upon and expand the ideas used in our books and courses, students who wish to enroll are strongly encouraged to either have read the PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible or have attended one of our LSAT courses.

The following simplified syllabus is used in the PowerScore Advanced LSAT Logic Games Course; the full course syllabus is considerably more detailed and is explored in-depth as you progress through the course:

Individual Game Discussions

The final portion of the course includes a detailed analysis and discussion of twelve separate LSAT Logic Games. These game discussions bring together all of the conceptual elements covered in the eight sessions, and show students how to systematically apply the methods and techniques they learned. The twelve games consist of some of the most difficult games in LSAT history, including the October 1991 Hannah game, the September 1998 Panel game, the June 2000 CD Game, and the June 2009 Dinosaur game, among others.
